Social Impact Reporting

In 2020 we launched the WIN Social Impact Reporting Initiative (SIRI) to help bring the stories of vulnerable and marginalised communities to mainstream media, and help to increase their access to news and information.

Following a single round of direct communication in June 2020, more than 110 individual journalists and editors applied for a SIRI reporting assignment, and more than 40 organisations applied for a SIRI organisational grant. This is a growing focus area for WIN as the initiative also provides direct support to members of the WIN community who are contending with significant economic hardship brought on by COVID-19.
